40 weeks and baby arrived on time!

I didn't get a chance to post a 40 week picture because baby arrived right on time. On his due date January 13, 2015 at 10:16 am. He weighed 9lb 8oz and was 20 1/4 inches. Another successful VBA3C praise Yahweh. I did have a set back where they couldn't break my water until the baby went lower so I was in labor longer than expected and had to have pitocin but Rusty my husband prayed for me and I felt a warmness on my back and tried to push baby down. Yahweh helped us through and they were able to break my water and so I went from a 6 to7 to a 10 and was able to push and had him in about 45 minutes. Also I prayed for no back pain and I did feel less pain in contractions and was able to cope longer. 


 Here is a summary of Ethan's Birth:

My doctor stripped my membranes at about 3:30 pm at my regular appointment on January 12 and at about 4 pm contractions began. I was at a 3 or 4 when she checked. Then I thought my water broke at home at about 7 pm and so we went to hospital at 9:10 pm Turned out being fluid build up but water was still intact. I did get admitted after 2 hours and was at about a 5 to 6. I was opting for no epidural for awhile but my water needed to be broken and they wanted to use pitocin to help so at 2:45 am I got a epidural and at 3:45 am I received pitocin. I was getting really tired and frustrated so then Rusty prayed for me and that is when I felt the help for pushing him down. I am glad even though my doctor wasn't on call I got her former partner and she was patient and waited to break water until it was safe. Soon after the prayer the doctor was able to break water at about 9:30  am and I had him at 10:16 am on his due date January 13, 2015. Praise Yahweh and my husband was a great encouragement and help.

36 Weeks

I have been feeling braxton hicks on and off but the real thing will be coming soon. Due date is January 13. I am asking Yahweh for help with pain management and praying for a natural birth of our 5th baby boy and 6th child. We are all very excited anticipating this blessing from Yahweh.  I am feeling pretty good although baby boy is getting heavy LOL He is moving around and doing well. I wonder when he will be here we all guessed what day for fun. My daughter and I picked the 28th which is the day after her birthday. We didn't know each other's guess until we all picked so we will see Yah willing. We praise him for our blessing on the way!
